It has taken me alot of courage to register on this site. After an arguement with my daughter this morning I realise that I have a problem. I have become obsessed with cleaning certain parts of the house. It has got to the point where if someone is in the kitchen I will make a point of checking to see if it is clean and tidy. My family at first have made jokes and now things are affecting them. I continually have a cloth, hoover or mop in my hand. My husband has said that I am old before my time and that I need to chill more. I won't allow myself to do anything that I consider to be dangerous, such as going on fair rides and other sports.
Please help me understand what is wrong with me, I am 50 years old with 3 grown-up children. What should I do? I don't want to look silly by going to my GP or wasting his time.
